 We love gray. Don’t get us wrong. We do. But we’ve had about enough of the sky being gray. We’re primed and ready for a little aqua! (We’re heading to the beach but we have a feeling we’re just driving to more gray…)

 Outside, aqua is one of our very favorite shades.

 Inside, it is one of our all-time favorite accent colors.

 Maybe it’s because it’s a reminder of our favorite color sky outside, but an aqua room living room immediately feels like a vacation.

And aqua accents turn a plain white room into an event.

 Especially in a seaside home, sea glass in aqua is a reminder of what resides right outside the door.

But, oh my goodness, there’s nothing quite like the real thing to make you feel inspired!

 Mixing paler shades of aqua with brighter ones adds elegance and style.

 An aqua nailhead trim keeps a neutral dining room from becoming stale.

 Nothing says “welcome” like a touch of the unexpected at the front door.

 And for keeping a white bathroom from feeling too sterile, it’s a go-to choice.

In tile, in paint, in the best accessories money can buy, aqua may be pretty. But no one, and we do mean no one, can do aqua better than the mother that created it in the first place. Wouldn’t you like to be here right now? We know we would!

Wherever you are today, wishing you aqua skies and seas. Or, if your weather is a little more like ours, hoping you find a way to appreciate the gray!
